Event Details


I welcome you to this year's workshop for students of Indian music to be held at Stephens House and Gardens. This all-day event represents an excellent opportunity for like-minded people to come together as a group and learn new and exciting ways of improving their music skills.


The aim for Tabla students is to gain a more in-depth knowledge of 'Taal', which forms the foundation of rhythm and for vocalists to gain a detailed insight into genres of 'Light' and 'Classical' Indian Music forms.


The workshop is in two distinct parts with Tabla in Session 1 and Vocal in Session 2.

Session 1  10am-1pm  Tabla 

In this exciting workshop, you will be focusing entirely on Taal Roopak, a rhythm of 7 beats. The session will encompass the various Theka, how it is embellished with Mukra and various Tihai. We will also be listening to several examples of Roopak Taal that will help you to identify it in classical and popular music. 

Session 2  2pm-5pm Vocal 

In this session, our aim is understanding practice (Riyaz), principally how to practice and what to practice in your own time. You will then be introduced to a Raag with Alaap, Bandish and basic Taans. Following this will be a presentation of a light song (Bhajan/Ghazal) also based on a Raag. Your session will also include a Tabla player to keep time for each rendition.

What's special about this workshop?

My belief is that singing in a group is both motivating and fun and these are two key aspects of learning. Also, the creation of a musical environment is inspiring on several levels. It allows students the opportunity to learn from one other and also to play and discuss music with others who share a common interest and this cannot be replicated in individual classes.

Who can attend?

The workshop is open to all ages. Although beginners can attend, the workshops are aimed at students with an intermediate knowledge (more than 6 months of regular classes) or better.

Tickets and Refund Policy

Single early bird workshop tickets are £45.00 including fees and for those of you who would like to attend both sessions, all-day tickets are discounted to £75.00 inclusive of fees. Normal price tickets tickets are £52.50 per session. Tickets at the door are £60.00 per session.
